In a widely-reported reversal last week, Scott Brown canceled the final US Senate debate -- dismissing it as unnecessary. As a result, voters in Massachsuetts have been left to a barrage of biased and often less-than-honest campaign advertisements, mailers and phone calls in the final days of the election season.

Candidates can talk all they want, but when it comes down to it, it's the votes that matter. That's why we've put together a full online timeline of Scott Brown's less-discussed positions -- from his votes to kill job creation and unemployment extension bills to Brown's efforts to weaken Wall Street regulations.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
